Storyline

Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile has an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

Quotes

Roy: [talking about Philip] It's just, I don't know many heterosexual men who read Heat.
Jen: So, what? He's gay? Just because he reads Heat magazine?
Roy: Hmmm, well, he's either gay or a woman in her early twenties.
Jen: No, no no no no no no. Why else would he ask me out on a date?
Roy: Are you sure he meant it as a date-date? Are you sure you're not going along as his 'gal pal'?
Moss: If you're talking about who I think you're talking about, then the answer is yes. He is gay.
Jen: How do you know?
Moss: Oh, everyone knows. And ...

Pure Gold
25 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is simply the best episode of the funniest programme on TV for decades. One of the things that British comedy does best is the "awkward situation" and this episode takes it to a new level only touched upon by programmes such as Fawlty Towers, Only Fools and Horses and The Office in the past. The comic-timing from all of the main characters but especially Moss is something that should be preserved in aspic for future generations of comedians to study.

The criticism from one of the other reviewers on here seems to mix-up bad-taste and homophobic humour with humour directed at those people who perpetuate such views. The jokes are not anti-gay but anti-bigot or anti-awkwardness.

I am not going to say anything about the "situation" of this comedy but just to say, if you want 20 odd minutes of literally tears-running-down- the-cheek joy then watch this.
